As one of the UK’s largest low carbon hydrogen production facilities, H2Teesside aims to bring jobs, customers, and investment to Teesside.
H2Teesside aims to be one of the biggest blue hydrogen production facilities in the UK, delivering economic growth for Teesside and the domestically‐produced low carbon hydrogen that the UK needs.
It will produce approximately 160,000 tonnes of low carbon hydrogen per annum, which will displace existing natural gas consumption by industrial emitters in Teesside, and capture and send for secure long-term storage approximately two million tonnes of CO₂ per year.
Along with its sister project HyGreen Teesside and a number of other proposed projects in the area, H2Teesside can strengthen Teesside’s development into the UK’s leading hydrogen hub, creating new high quality jobs, supporting local education and skills development and kick-starting a highly-skilled UK-based hydrogen supply chain.
bp will also invest in green skills by launching a dedicated education skills programme for H2Teesside. The programme will aim to reach more than 5,000 people to help inspire the next generation of talent, ensuring local people benefit from near-term job opportunities and advancing social mobility.
At bp, we are taking action through transformative projects that will help us achieve our net zero ambition.
As operator of the Northern Endurance Partnership, we are helping build the infrastructure needed to safely capture, transport and store CO₂ from a range of power, hydrogen and industrial businesses in Teesside and the Humber who together make up the East Coast Cluster (ECC). The ECC aims to remove up to 27 million tonnes of CO₂ emissions a year by 2030.
We’re also operators of Net Zero Teesside Power which will be the world’s first commercial scale, gas-fired power station with carbon capture technology, capable of capturing up to two million tonnes of CO2 a year.
In addition to H2Teesside, Teesside is also the planned location of bp’s green hydrogen project – HyGreen Teesside. Together, H2Teesside and HyGreen Teesside, could deliver over 15% of the UK Government’s target of developing 10GW of hydrogen production by 2030.
